Also an Economist with the University of Ghana Business School, Dr. Lord Mensah says as Ghana exits the IMF programme, it will be prudent that government sticks to most of the conditions given it during the period to ensure fiscal discipline.

He called for strict adherence to these conditions to avoid expenditure overrun.
